Hello, Thanks for your query. The illness you told you is almost cervico-brachial neuralgia due to cervical vertebrae c5 to c7 spondylitic changes .The corresponding cervical root nerve compressed which gives rise to severe excruciating pain, over neck,shoulder andarm. sometimes giddiness numbness over the fingers also according to severity of the compression.Kindly do MRI scan and cunsult an orthopaedic and Neurologist. meanwhile you avoid moving the head by applying a cervical collar. good.
